Wiesbaden's Christmas market is set on picturesque Schlossplatz square against the backdrop of the old and new town hall, the imposing market church and Hessen's regional assembly building. Four gates in the shape of lilies form the entrances to the market, where the oriental-style stalls decked out in blue and gold are a treasure trove of arts and crafts. Festively illuminated lilies from Wiesbaden's coat of arms shine out over the market and the city centre. Other highlights are the Nativity scene with life-size figures, a programme of entertainment on the Christmas stage, a kids' railway and the 800m² ice rink in front of the theatre.
